The State of UK Broadband — Not So Fast

Lex-Man82 Re:Tell it to the people who cannot get broadband (279 comments)

Don't they have to fix your line if it's broken. Also they are upgrading the system to fibre optics. I have BT internet and have six megabit internet even though I live right next to the exchange.

Ethical Killing Machines

Lex-Man82 Re:Interesting... (785 comments)

Oddly, the cost of a Automated Killing Machine would probably be more than the cost of a human solider. I guessing that a Automated Killing Machine will cost as least a quarter of a million to buy. A solders training costs around ten times less than that. Also any windows, children's maintenance after wards would likely be less than the cost of a new machine.

Lex-Man82 (994679) writes "The BBC are reporting that Emusic a online music site has opened a site in Europe that sells non DRM encrypted music. From the article: "The world's biggest online retailer of independent music has opened a European store offering unrestricted downloads. EMusic is the second most successful download site in the US after Apple's iTunes Music Store, and will sell tracks from 8,500 independent labels." What repercussions will this have for music retailers like Apple selling DRM encrypted music?"

From the article:
"Microsoft is planning to upgrade its Windows Media digital rights management (DRM) program, to tackle the recently released FairUse4WM application, which circumnavigates the program.

Microsoft is aiming to build a business that distributes protected music and video content, to rival Apple's iTunes, so any system that gets around its DRM is seen as a serious threat by the company."

I guess nobody is going to be surprised that Microsoft is upgrading its DRM after the release of FairUse4WM, but does anyone other than Microsoft really think they can challenge Apple online music trade?"
